The London borough’s parks currently try to cater for a wide range of uses and interests. The council’s new Green Spaces Strategy proposes that different parks should be geared towards different uses.
"We are linking the Green Spaces Strategy with the council’s strategy in order to promote healthy and active lifestyles, building on growing evidence of the physical and mental health benefits of access to green spaces.
"Almost every respondent to the recent All in One borough survey told us that parks and open spaces are important to them. It’s our duty to protect and enhance our green spaces, giving residents and visitors the best facilities possible.
"Our new Green Spaces Strategy encourages greater community and voluntary support - we, as a Council, can’t do this on our own, nor would we want to. Community engagement is at the very heart of this plan. We are committed to working with community-led initiatives and key partner organisations to make sure that we are developing our green spaces together."
